THE warming weather phase at the beginning of this week will take a sudden change on Thursday with temperatures dipping significantly and a wind chill factor that will make it feel like 10 degrees.
The Bureau of Meteorology has said the next couple of days will be sunny heading for a maximum of 21 degrees, which is a couple of degrees above average for this time of year.
They are expecting a significant change to come through towards the end of the week; on Thursday there will be west to north west winds and on Friday the temperatures will drop to the mid-teens with cooler air and winds from the west to south west.
The winds will remain until Sunday, making the mid-teen expected temperatures feel like 10 degrees.
A dusting of snow is not out of the question on the Barrington Tops, but rainfalls are expected to be low.
Most of the rain expected with the cool change will occur on the western side of the rain.
In the Upper Hunter there is the possibility of showers producing 5ml, but the rain at this stage looks patchy and most places may only expect 1 or 2 ml.
